president obama leading in key swing states, the presidential debates may be mitt romney's last, best chance to turn the race around and we wanted to find out what the romney-ryan plan is when they face off against obama and biden. we caught up with running mate p ryan, saturday in derry, new hampshire. before we sat down for an exclusive interview, we spoke briefly as he was about to take the stage for a campaign town hall. >> chris: what do you think? just before you go out on stage, each time? >> president obama is taking us in the wrong direction and emerging market and i are offering them a different direction and i'm excited at the opportunity to give people the chance to pick that choice. that is what gets me excited about this. >> thank you so much for coming out, everybody... >> chris: welcome to fox news sunday. >> thanks, chris, welcome to new hampshire. >> chris: thank you. what does governor romney need to do wednesday night in the first debate. >> he needs to give the american people the choice we are offering. that is what we are doing. we owe the country a country clear choic
? >> president obama is leadion in the polls nationally now and leading in the swing states so the question is how do you reaffirm the existing status quo, in a sense the sale has been made. and he is just there not to seeking any short of dramatic moment. he just wants this thing to happen and be history. for mitt romney i think the problem is and i think this came out in your interview, >> gretchen: chris, suddenly you hear the republicans talking about a choice election. bill kristol said look you got to go at obama's record and make it not only about what he has done in the past but what he is likely to do in the future. that is what the prescription will be for the republicans. most people will watch the debate and a lot of people will watch. they think about 50 million people. a huge audience. if those people come together table are going to make up their mind that would be one thing. most of those people have already made up their minds. i think they are watching for the human moment and that zinger. i think that is what people will take away. >> chris: i want to talk about lawyer yo
polls give president obama an edge in three key swing states. once you isolate voters who are extremely interested in the election, the race is much closer. >> romney's tied when you focus on the inexpressibly intrigued. and he's up by two points when you count only voters who are psychotically engaged. folks, i have got my own source of polls, conservative blogger dean chambers who analyzed these polls favoring obama and then reached the scientific conclusion that they just didn't look right. chambers' work throws all polls into doubt now. even the internal ones i have taken of myself. i mean, the results say i'm not that excited about mitt romney, but as a conservative i feel like i should love him. maybe the sample size is too small or maybe i checked the wrong box and i'm actually latino, you know? >> it's not a good sign just six weeks from election day to bash the polls. >>> the first presidential debate is next week, next wednesday. looking back to the gop primary debates for a moment, there were probably times when you heard a candidate's response and thought, can that really be
remarkable thing when you go back and look at the state by state swing state polls, in florida or in wisconsin or in ohio or in iowa, the remarkable thing and the only thing that has changed in terms of the demographics is that barack obama is now tied with mitt romney or beating mitt romney among voters over 60. that's the very group that is the most skeptical of barack obama. they have been the hardest group for him to win over, but he is now winning them over and there's only one reason for that, it is medicare. and, you know, as much as i totally understand what howard fineman was saying, there was no other reason to pick paul ryan other than his budget. paul ryan was not the governor of a state, he can't deliver his home state from what we're seeing -- >> we know that now. >> you picked him because you wanted to tell the right we're going to take your ideology and take it to main street and then he didn't want to do it. he is trying to hide -- >> let me -- now you got into a little thought here about howard's thinking, my question to you, and it's a tough one, didn't he kn
now in states like virginia. they lost it by 270,000 votes four years ago. i don't think obama can get the college turnouts. and i think romney is going to cut into the northern margin substance staley. i think the -- more promise, this equestering can put a big cloud over all the workers and defense workers, what's going to happen to them after november. >> all the demographics how you have to go about changing virginia. look at unemployment, it's low. they're not having as much of a problem as the rest of the nation. it's raising a huge question for federal workers as to who's going to get cut. demographics have changed, the republicans need to understand there's a very multi ethnic area. fairfax county, the largers jurisdiction in the state. so they have to address those issues and they're doing a great job, i think. >> romnalex, if people know pennsylvania, it really is a purple state, very independent minded people. there was a susquehanna poll that had milt romney within about two points. if he's going to have a strategy in pennsylvania, he's got to focus on those counties that a
romney's pass to president obama's 270 electoral votes. one of the most conservative swing states that president obama won back in 2008. the amount of money that both campaigns are throwing at this state, it's very clear that nobody has put it away yet, and in fact that obama leads most of the polls. if some of these swing states aren't going to -- >> well, dana, they sent paul ryan to the major league state of ohio and he was talking about medicare while come paining. >> i want to be very care about this, mitt romney and i will never waiver in our commitment to our seniors. our plans actually save these programs, they make no changes for people in or near retirement, they strengthen medicare and social security for a generation. >> i'm curious, a new quinnipiac poll shows that toward the end of august, more seniors in florida favored mitt romney on medicare. now that has flipped, more seniors now support president obama with medicare. what do you make of the numbers, did mitt romney make too much baggage on this critical issue when he selected paul ryan? >> part of that is more e
. the new nbc news/"wall street journal"/marist poll has president obama up in all nine battleground states. in the same poll the president leads mitt romney 53% to 39% in nevada amongst folks who say they're going to vote early. while mitt romney leads 57% to 39% among election-day voters. the president's lead even big anywhere north carolina among voters, 57-41. how dot early voting numbers, how do they affect the race? >> they affect the race because you're trying to bank your votes. the people who are going to vote for you. the obama folks want those people to come out, turn out and vote right away. we've saw president obama campaigning in ohio earlier last week. and president obama had this message -- one, register to vote. and two when early voting starts, on tuesday october 2nd, go to the polls right now. they want to start banking the votes. it was a strategy in 2008. to prevent any type of october surprise, you want to get, if you're an obama voter go vote now and get that done. get it out of the way. >> you mentioned the october surprise, you look at the numbers closer than just a
of things today. eight months ago, in the state of the union speech, obama issued an appeal to congress to spend more federal money on construction projects that would generate jobs. what he said was, take the money we are no longer spending at war. use half of the to pay down our debt. use the rest to do some nation building right here at home. we pointed out in a fact check that night the fallacy of that idea. the idea that some kind of budget surplus is going to be created when you stop the wars is fiscal fiction. those wars have been primarily financed by borrowing. if you stop the wars, you do not have new money, you just have less debt being added. it does not treat a pool of ready cash. on top of that, the supposed savings of this supposed peace dividend is inflated because it is based on spending numbers that are extrapolated into the future that would come from the height of the intensity of the war and they do not follow the downward trend that it has been in reality. we pointed all that out in a fact check on a state of the union night. how does the administration react? thre
believe that as a nation we are moving forward again. >> this morning, the state of the race, a debate preview and a look at the issues that will sway undecided voters. with us, republican governor of new jersey, the keynoter at the gop convention, chris christie. and for the obama campaign. the architect of his 2008 run. now, white house senior adviser, david plum. finally insights and analysis if our political roundtable, plus the latest from the battleground map. joining us, founder of the faith and freedom coalition, ralph reed. >>> former democratic governor of pennsylvania, ed rendell. >>> anchor of bbc's world news america. and our chief white house correspondent, and political director, chuck todd. >>> good sunday morning, with both sides in full preparation mode for wednesday's first presidential debate, the struggling romney campaign is recalibrating his message to better connect with voters on the economy and to attack the president on his handling of the latest foreign policy crisis, the evolving explanation of what exactly happened in libya. when our u.s. ambassador was ki
's obama advantage across the board. look at ohio, plus seven. virginia, plus five. these are key states. is the race over? >> absolutely not. and that happened pretty quickly, right, david? you saw the change in those polls happen very quickly. and i'm here to tell you it can happen very quickly back the other way, and i think the beginning of that is wednesday night when governor romney for the first time gets on the same stage with the president of the united states and people can make a direct comparison about them and their visions for the future. and wednesday night is the restart of this campaign and i think you'll see the numbers start to move right back in the other direction. >> how do you restart a campaign, governor, at that last moment where you can reach tens of millions of people? why isn't it too late to believe that after you announce your running mate, after you have your own convention, that you can restart with the presidential debates? >> absolutely. you'll have tens of millions of people for the very first time, david, really tuning in and paying attention to this r
financial regulations the obama administration has been doing battle with states across the country. joining us two state attorneys general who find themselves in the middle of the legal show downs. gentlemen, welcome. >> well, thank you. >> thank you, shannon. >> shannon: general wilson i want to start with you. talk about south carolina's voter i.d. law requires various forms of photo i.d. for those who are going to show up and vote. it has been argued before a panel of federal judges now. do you think it survives? >> well, first off we always knew this was going to be an uphill battle just because you look at who you are fighting but south carolina has gone to great lengths over the last several years to craft a law that protects the integrity of the ballot box while ensuring the individual right to vote is not touched and that is remains sacred and south carolina stands by its law and we believe we have a good law and we are guardedly optimistic that we will prevail but you just never know in these types of cases. >> shannon: there basically would be a pass this year if the law is upheld
crystal ball station we have him at 290 electoral votes but some of those states are just barely leaning to him, like my native virginia. obama is ahead two or three points. the polls have him up higher than that, but i don't think he's really there. >> schieffer: ar let me just go to our map of the battled ground states here, nevada, new hampshire, north carolina, ohio, virginia, florida, iowa, wisconsin and colorado. i think most of the polls suggest now that the president is at least slightly ahead in all of these states, except possibly north carolina. cbs news is now calling ohio in fact leaning, leaning to the president not a toss-up state. does that sound about right to you? >> that sounds about right. i actually think north carolina is probably leaning to romney, despite some recent polls to the contrary. to be honest i think the three toss-ups where he has the best shot are florida, new hampshire, and particularly colorado. but in all of those other toss-upes, like wisconsin, nevada, ohio, virginia, you're seeing at least at this point a trend to obama. but, bob, i would just ca

, setting the stage where the race is right now, we see president obama ahead five points nationally, right now, ahead in all of the battleground states, what happened in september? >> i think, this race, if it's a five-point race, is when you look at this, the national number is 5er 6. all of the target states are going be somewhere around that national number. what i think that romney -- what happened to romney campaign, i think political malpractice. they left the playing field to the entire obama campaign. they allowed them to outspend them in the summer. and basically set the tone for the final 60 days of this campaign. which puts them behind after the convention. now, they're behind in the prism of which voters view this is negative for mitt romney. >>> i want to put up a chart right now. it comes from the "new york times" after that 47% comment right here, you see it right there, it look at how it opens up in that last week and a half that was damaging? >> well, it may well end being damaging. this campaign is all about process, it's about polling, campaign management. it's about eve
economy that fosters dependency? that is not who we are. in the live free or die state, we want to live free and prosper. [applause] when president obama came into office, he inherited a tough situation. there are no two boys about it. the problem is, the obama economic agenda failed -- there are no two ways about it. it failed because it was bad. he came into office with one party rule. host: paul ryan and new hampshire. our third party is still relevant? caller: good morning. relevant not as parties but in terms of spoilers. they have been relevant with mr. ross perot. i like him. i think he could have done wonderfully if he stayed within the republican party. i google this. we have had 132 third party presidential candidates going back to 1832 when it was the anti mason party or something like that. none of them have garnered much of the vote. there are mostly french candidates. i do not said derogatory. they do not have a lot of base. it is not that they are not popular because they get no media, they get no media because they are not popular. even ron paul and even ross perot. the
